Additional Physical Format: Online version: Acidification of surface waters in eastern Canada and its relationship to aquatic biota. Ottawa: Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans,   Acidification of surface waters is a high-profile environmental issue in Atlantic Canada.

Despite a reduction of emissions of acid-precursors (particularly SO 2) by more than 50% in major regions in North America, there has not yet been a significant recovery of surface waters in the region, likely because of the impoverished acid-neutralizing capacity (ANC) of by: formation on the effects of acidification on aquatic org anisms in Atlantic Canada suggests that the greatest changes in phyto- plankton occur over a pH range of tojust beyond the.

Response of aquatic biota to acidification of surface waters by acidic deposition Decreases in pH and elevated concentrations of dissolved inorganic aluminum have resulted in physiological changes to organisms, direct mortality of sensitive life history stages, and reduced the species diversity and abundance of aquatic life in many streams.

Here we present the first direct observations of the acidification rate of a lake that has undergone extensive damage to its aquatic biota as the result Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Assessment of the theory and hypotheses of the acidification of watersheds}, author = {Krug, E.C.}, abstractNote = {This report documents and critically assesses the evolution and status of the scientific understanding of the effects of acidic deposition on surface waters.

The main conclusion is that the dominant theory of surface-water acidification fails to. The Lake Acidification program monitors water quality in selected NS lakes in order to assess trends in lake acidification due to Long Range Transport of Air Pollutant (LRTAP) sources.

This program is affiliated with the Lake Acidification monitoring program undertaken by Environment Canada (EC). Freshwater becomes acidic when acid inputs surpass the quantity of bases produced in the reservoir through weathering of rocks, or by the reduction of acid anions, like sulfate and nitrate within the lake.

The main reason for freshwater acidification is atmospheric depositions and soil leaching of SO x and NO x. In an acid-sensitive ecosystem, which includes slow-weathering bedrock and. Biota can be influenced directly by changes in water quality during both short acidic episodes and longer-term sustained periods of acidification: they are affected indirectly by alterations to the balance of acid-sensitive and acid-tolerant species at different trophic levels sometimes leading to a lessening of grazing by: Abstract.

Forty-six percent of Canada is classified as having aquatic ecosystems that are highly sensitive to acidic deposition. The existing effect of acidic SO 4 deposition on surface waters has been evaluated for eastern Canada (east of the Ontario-Manitoba provincial border) by using a lake chemistry data base that contains chemical information for bution statistics for Author: Dean S.

Effects of Acid Rain - Surface Waters and Aquatic Animals The ecological effects of acid rain are most clearly seen in U.S. were identified as containing many of the surface waters sensitive to acidification. They Emissions from U.S. sources also contribute to acidic deposition in File Size: KB.

Ocean acidification is the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO 2) from the atmosphere. Seawater is slightly basic (meaning pH > 7), and ocean acidification involves a shift towards pH-neutral conditions rather than a transition to acidic conditions (pH.

Long-term (–) water quality monitoring in 36 acid-sensitive Swedish lakes shows slow recovery from historic acidification. Overall, strong acid anion concentrations declined, primarily as a result of declines in sulfate. Chloride is now the dominant anion in many acid-sensitive by: Ocean acidification, the worldwide reduction in the pH of seawater as a consequence of the absorption of large amounts of carbon dioxide by the oceans.

It is largely the result of loading Earth’s atmosphere with large quantities of carbon dioxide, produced by vehicles and industrial and agricultural processes.Global monitoring of ocean acidification is increasing but there is a need for further development of predictive models.

A well-integrated global monitoring network for ocean acidification is crucial to improve understanding of current variability and to develop models that provide projections of future conditions in surface waters and at depth.
